If you are one big fan of mobile plan offers, Reliance Mobile is the way to go. It often introduces some cheap plans, both in prepaid and post paid that break the Industry rates and make other network operators think about it.
One such offer is the ‘Unlimited STD offer‘ where a subscriber can make unlimited minutes of not only STD calls (as the name may suggest) but also all local Reliance to Reliance calls. Prepaid customers can avail this offer only at
Rs.496 inclusive of Service tax and Post-paid customer with a rental of Rs.440 (see Update below).
I can’t remember of an offer similar to this in other networks for such low price.
In any case if you can’t afford Rs.496 a month, you also have top-up to halve your STD call charges.
With the new Reliance Jaadu Pack, you can make STD calls to any network mobile or Landline at only 50 ps/min. Note that this tariff is applicable from the second minute of your call. The first minute will be charged at Rs.1 for a local call and Rs.1.50 for a STD call.
The recharge coupon value to avail this offer is Rs.39
There are a host of other JAADU Pack offers to make your calls cost lower. For example, with the recharge of Rs.35, you can avail all STD and Local calls for Rs.1/min.
With Recharge coupon Rs.34, you can get all Local alls for 60 paise/min and all STD calls for Rs.1.20 per minutes.
With coupon Rs.49, you can get a local call to Reliance fixed or Reliance CDMA mobile at only 33 paise/min and all other local calls at 49 paise/min. STD calls will be charged normally at Rs.1.50/min.
With RC 195, you can get 1000 free minutes to Local Reliance CDMA mobiles.
With RC 249, you can get unlimited free Local reliance to Reliance CDMA calls and all other local calls only at 49 paise/min.
And if you are an SMS addict, you have Discounted SMS top-up’s. For example in AP circle, with RC 30, you get 300 free SMS’s and with RC 50, you get 1000 free SMS’s, validity lasting for 30 days.
Compare this with Airtel Special 5 offer.
Update: This plan is no more for Rs.496 or 440. Now you have to spend Rs.599 to get free unlimited R to R local calls plus 4000 minutes of STD calls to Reliance number or spend Rs.799 to get R to R unlimited local minutes plus 10000 Reliance STD minutes plus 30 minutes per day for any local/STD calls to other networks. This tariff is for AP and may or may not be same in other circles.
